    I'll start us off:
    So I was in Farm and Fleet with my mom, she was getting some rabbit food and I was cruisin' the horse aisle as usual. I noticed they'd gotten some awls in and I picked one up just as my mom was walking into the aisle. She looks at it, then at me and asks nervously, "That's not something you like, poke holes in the horse with is it?"
    :no:
    Really? Reeaaallyyyy?

    So what's the funniest thing a non-horsey person has said to you?

    Ya know the blindfolded horse question? I had never heard of it actually happening outside of online.

    Christmas...I went to my roommate's work party. One of the guys there actually asked me. "Do they really blindfold the horses to keep them from running around?" So naturally...I asked him who told him that.

    Another guy there actually had him CONVINCED that Thoroughbreds have to be blindfolded or they would run themselves to death. Because naturally not being able to see causes them to run into things really hard. So they learn to walk so when they do bump into something, it doesn't hurt.

    So I got to explain that "No...the horses are NOT blindfolded...its a see through mask t keep bugs off."

    I've been asked if people literally cut cows (and I quote 'like with knives?!?!') When I've mentioned I'm going to cutting practice.

    My little grandson had been around mares all his life, but when he saw Pistol hanging loose, he announced that the horse had 5 legs, but one was really short!

    Out riding several years ago, I stopped and was talking with a neighbor who had his nephew with him. I was letting them pet my horse and got a good laugh when the guy told his nephew that the only reason I could ride my horse with a bit in his mouth was because I pulled all his teeth out.

    He was clueless but had heard about someone having to pull the wolf teeth so just thought that meant all of them.

    Haha loving this, non-horsey people say the most hilarious things and when you start laughing they don't know why, they honestly think the ridiculous thing they just said was correct.

    I was so excited when I first got Mirage to extend her trot. So after riding I went inside and told my husband "I got Mirage to extend."
    He gave me this really weird look and then slowly said, "I thought Mirage was a girl.":faint::rofl:
